He’s curious and asks questions and after looking out into the distance for a while, the road ahead of us, he joins me in imagining.
We smile looking out into the impossible of things we can achieve together. We laugh, and then we listen to the sound of traffic, the old bolero music sounds from the stereo and waiting what the other will say next.
As he envisions, I lean in, and I caress his hand while his other steers to our next stop.
He says I’m his muse and he’s my everything. He’s patient, and I’m always in a hurry. I love my coffee a little sweet; he likes it bitter with a soft fluff of milk on top. He sees and understands me even before I utter the next word, and I can memorize his broken-record one-liners before he even sings his next one.
Ambitions for a future, love, and people. I never thought long ago, when I struggled to find myself that love could be like this. That someone could want me like this. And yet in that whole journey up until 11 years ago, he did and still does. Looking back onto every memory, makes me think that I wouldn’t want to do it any other way. This is us and who we are. We create. We capture moments. Moments of people and places. We celebrate love. We celebrate life.
We knew we wanted to spend forever together on our second date and we are holding onto those ambitions today.
And for right now until we reach those dreams, we trust in God, hope unswervingly, and love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

We confess that although we are madly in love with our home in the Bay Area we have a secret affair with traveling abroad and seeing new places. Come visit our studio in San Rafael!
Over the last 7 years, we’ve been honored to work as a husband-wife team, serving other husband and wives-to-be all over California and beyond. We wholeheartedly believe in family and preserving memories. Getting to do it together is also not too shabby.
